Professor Karrigan Börk will receive the Morrison Prize from Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law for his 2023 Harvard Environmental Law Review article “Water Right Exactions.”

The Morrison Prize awards $10,000 to “the most influential environmental sustainability-focused law journal article published in North America in the previous year,” according to an ASU news release announcing Börk’s award.
